All of us love a new makeup or manicure trend, don’t we? But if there’s one thing that truly transforms your look and makes you feel like a whole new person, it’s a hairstyle. So if you’re looking to give yourself a chic makeover or contemplating ridding your tresses of their grown-out layers, look no further than these five hair trends that are set to dominate 2022.
- 1. Bobs with side parts
- 2. Sleek strands
- 3. Slicked-back tresses
- 4. Mid-length layered hair
- 5. One-dimensional colours
1. Bobs with side parts
Bobs have gotten an upgrade. If you’re on the lookout for a style that’s a little more striking than a straightforward bob, this is the way to go. And, no, this isn’t exclusive to curly-haired girls. That’s how versatile this look is. If your hair lacks volume, you can add soft waves to this chin-length cut for some movement and dimension.
2. Sleek strands
A sleek look is just as glamorous as it is simple. And when paired with the right ensemble, this style is statement-making. Just blow-dry your hair like you normally would, ensure your hair is damp at this stage, and flat-iron your tresses after. Don’t forget to spritz your hair with a heat-resistant product like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray before using heat styling tools. This gem protects your hair from heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
3. Slicked-back tresses
We’re well-acquainted with the slicked-back look. And just how chic is it? Sported by the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kim Kardashian, slicked-back tresses are sultry and elegant. Pull your hair back with a brush, blow-dry them so they’re sitting flat on your head, and push the sections at the front toward the back with a straightener. Apply a few drops of argan oil in your hair, and spritz some setting spray at the end to hold the style in place.
4. Mid-length layered hair
Hair trends in 2022 aren't going to be as much about long and thick inches as mid-length hair with chin-grazing, face-framing layers. This is such a classic! And you don’t really have to style this look either. But you can use a blow-dryer to fake more volume.
5. One-dimensional colours
Bid adieu to balayage and ombré, and say hello to one-dimensional colours. According to projections, soft black, chocolate brown, and warm ginger are a few colours that are going to be dominating the hair-colour palette in 2022.
